Founded in 1998, Faces without Places supports children experiencing homelessness in Greater Cincinnati. Through their flagship programs: Yellow Bus Summer Camp (in its sixteenth year) and ZooMates (in its seventh year), Faces without Places has provided educational and enrichment programming and crucial services to keep more than 30,000 children experiencing homelessness connected to their schools and education.
Even though Faces without Places only consists of a three-person staff and operates on a small budget, they are able to reach approximately 2,000 students a year. This is largely due to their collaboration with almost 30 partner organizations, as well as, assistance from hundreds of volunteers and dozens of corporate and foundation supporters.
On this episode of FOCUS, representatives from Faces without Places discuss the most common causes of homelessness, where people experiencing homelessness actually live, how homelessness affects a child’s education, and the ways they are helping to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty in Greater Cincinnati.
